Jump Start:

We will be holding Jump Start for all incoming Kindergarten students on

Monday, August 19 and Tuesday August 20 from 9 am – 12 pm.

Please have students arrive at the Kindergarten doors (closest to the park on the school’s south side) at 8:50 am. These two days are a great opportunity for the students to meet our staff and participate in art, music, and physical education activities as well. Make sure to send your student with a snack as they will practice how to eat in the cafeteria as well.

Soft Start:

Please see the attached flyer for additional information.

Happy Summer

I hope that you are all enjoying a great summer.  Students remember your promise…A minimum of 20 minutes of reading everyday.  Now, you can even log your reading minutes for a good cause.  Just follow the link below and you can put in your minutes to help Save the Children reach their reading goal.

Link to log minutes

Also, are you practicing your math skills?  If you visit you can play games to keep your math mind working.  I just played Alien Addition and got a score of 30 per minute.  Who can beat it?  Make sure you check out the other games on there too!!

Remember, our brain is like a muscle, it needs a good workout to stay strong!

Clean Up Parade

We are praying Monday, May 20th will bring sunny skies.  Our students will be marching in a clean up parade at 9:45 am.

If you live between Lawrence and Hollander along York, Lawrence, Martha, or Hollander streets, or anywhere else close by and can join us along the route…

Please come out onto your porches and wave hello or hang out on the side walk and cheer on the students as they walk by!  We have a fun theme this year and our band students will also be joining us in the fun with some music.
